Chateau St Cloud
Chateau St Cloud lies in the quiet, lush centre of La Digue Island, at the foot of its tallest peak: Belle Vue, or Eagle's Nest Mountain. The location may lack beach frontage but it is a mere ten minutes' walk from the coast and is far from lacking in scenic attraction. A hillside road runs from the hotel to the 300m summit, from where panoramic views of the green interior and neighbouring islands make a hike here well worthwhile – especially if timed to watch sunset over Praslin with a drink from the low-key Snack Bellevue.
Our view of Chateau St Cloud
If you are happy to accept the ten-minute trip to the sea, and opt for one of the hotel's larger rooms, then Chateau St Cloud can be a really good choice on La Digue – though don't go looking for high standards of luxury or perfect service. The swimming pool is a real asset, especially when the temperature or humidity is high, and the hotel's relaxed atmosphere is equally appealing to families and couples.
